Maxim Dim Sum @ Taman Pekaka

Maxim Dim Sum 美食之家
Having caught up with Emilia and Alex last month at VivoCity in Singapore when I came back from Sweden gave me the warmth I yearned for after staying in Europe for 5 months.

Now they're back in Penang for a few days and I was able to meet the exact same people again coincidentally, but in Penang this time. Maxim Dim Sum Restaurant shall be the place 3 of us congregate for the last time in Penang, as Alex's going to work soon in Subang while Emilia and I will continue our final year in NUS. Oh, and because 3 of us are from NUS, we have relatively more common topics to kaypo about. It's therefore definitely a good time to cherish, we don't usually meet friends from NUS in our hometown.

Having breakfast in this dim sum restaurant at 10am was suggested by Emilia because it's nearer to her home, however in spite of that, I was asked to pick her up and drop her back home.
